Question Visitor Based Networks

Has anyone here worked at one? or helped building one??
I was wondering what is the technology involved in building a VBN for a hotel for example.
Would i need a custom (and i supose expensive) visitor gateway device of some kind to emulate each vlan of every new host??
Has anyone had any experience or know of anyone who has been able to do such a thing in a linux env bypassing such a device?
Also, any interesting links about the subject and about such devices would be more than welcome, given that i find them rather difficult to get by.

If anyone is interested you can check out this article at the Internet Protocol Journal at Cisco:
